Here are some Pollyanna quotes and lies from the hoodwinked mainstream media as well as Dick (Darth Vader) Cheney, regarding the Iraq war, which deserve to be reviewed and remembered in light of the release next week of Cheney’s memoir ~ In My Time : Allen L Roland
In light of the release next week of Dick Cheney’s memoir, In My Time, we must never forget that Cheney tried to justify illegally attacking Iraq on March 20, 2003 by using intelligence that the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee later labeled "unsubstantiated, contradicted, or even non-existent."
Here’s a great example of this unindicted scoundrel at work ~ “Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us." (August 26, 2002, Cheney speech in Nashville, Tenn)
And my all time Cheney favorites ~
"My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators." (Dick Cheney, March 16, 2003)
"I think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency." ~ (Dick Cheney on the growing Iraq insurgency, June 20
And do not ever forget the Iraq War's Pollyanna pundits who were totally sucked into Bush and Cheney’s illegal war and occupation of Iraq ~ here are two of my favorite quotes from an enclosed list of Iraq war punditry ;
"We're all neo-cons now."
"He looked like an alternatively commander in chief, rock star, movie star, and one of the guys."

This video was recorded very early in the Iraq War with Howard Zinn ~
Hard truths and how Americans have been shielded from them.
4 minute Video:
So there you have it ~ Dick Cheney was and continues to be the great deceiver but as Machiavelli wrote,” One who deceives will always find those who allow themselves to be deceived" and the mainstream press has been more than willing to perpetuate these deceptions and delay, if not bury, the truth.
Cheney also defiantly promised on NBC news that “there are gonna be heads exploding all over Washington,’’ after people read his book ~ but I predict that eyes will be rolling ~ for Cheney’s self serving book, co-authored by his daughter, is still masking an obvious truth. Cheney purposely lied and is still lying about Iraq in order to obscure his role in the Mossad/CIA 9/11 neo-con false flag operation as well as his on going efforts to still shift that blame to Bin Laden, Al-Qaeda and eventually Iraq in order to protect himself and key members of the Bush administration who would most certainly be implicated and indicted if properly investigated.
Take the time to watch this brief 4 minute interview on NBC News ~ Cheney’s denial and rigid arrogance is almost breathtaking ~ particularly when justifying water boarding and torture to his interviewer. He is obviously convinced he is a patriot and his book, according to NY Times reviewer, Michiko Kakutani is “mostly a predictable mix of spin, stonewalling, score settling and highly selective reminiscences.”
And why was Cheney the earliest and strongest advocate of torture and water boarding? Cheney was determined to use any means possible to obtain forced confessions for the so called 9/11 terrorist Attack ~ which will eventually be seen, hopefully in Cheney’s time, as a neo-con inspired CIA/Mossad assisted and treasonous controlled demolition false flag operation.
It is not necessary to bury the truth.
